25 Days Until Christmas - Days 23 - 25

I finished and finally had a chance to photograph the rest of the pages in my 25 Days Until Christmas book! I really love the way my book turned out, and once again, I'm so glad I created it!

The first page for Day 23 features my aproned girls working in the kitchen! We did so much baking and cooking, and it was a lot of fun!

Over the second page for Day 23 I put in an envelope that is holding our Secret Santa slips of paper that Jessica created for when we picked who we would be buying for, and it also contains all of the receipts for the Secret Santa gifts!

The second Day 23 page has a photo of all of the Secret Santa gifts. This is our second year doing the Secret Santa, and it was as much fun this year as it was last year! We all got awesome gifts!

Day 24 features our family portrait in front of the fireplace. This photo turned out GREAT, and it was our first take! The camera was on a timer, and I was so impressed with the sound of the camera catching Princess' attention! Awesome photo!

Day 25 shows my wonderful girls all decked out in their Old Navy gifts! I picked out jackets, gloves, and hats for them both. They LOVE them, and they sure are cute in them!!

The second page for Day 25 features a cute photo of Jessica, Emily, and Princess in front of the fireplace. They are wearing their Old Navy pajamas and fuzzy socks (well, you can't see the fuzzy socks!) They really love all of their Old Navy clothes which makes me very happy! Princess also has a couple of her gifts in front of her! I love these three so much!

So, that's my book for this year! I really love the way it turned out, and I feel a huge sense of accomplishment for getting it done! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year, Carol! I'm starting off the new year with a question. What's the difference between Project 365 and Project Life? I know it's a Becky Higgins' idea, so it's going to be great. Explain, please.

(Remember... You're the reason I'm doing Project 365. Now I'm wondering if I need to start this Project Life, too. Help me out!)

You're 25 Days of Christmas book is excellent, by the way.
